5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than expected

Pros: I bought this laptop because I am a full time student and realized my old laptop was simply too large to be portable. After looking at netbooks I feared they were under powered even for simple tasks. This is essentially a souped up netbook. Great size very portable, but has a larger hard drive, better battery life, more memory and windows 7 home premium. It suprisingly can handle some game as well, kills the battery obviously but I have played Portal on it with sucesss as well as Audiosurf, Painkiller, Max Payne just to name a few. Handles HD video like a dream which is nice because of a few gaps I have in my schedule. I have never hit the full battery life advertised but when listening to music and streaming netflix I average 6-7 hours on a full charge, which is still a bit above average for many cheaper laptops.

Cons: The only con is the screen, it does have a lot of glare when in a well lighted environment and the veiwing angle is pretty lmited before distortion occurs. If you use wired LAN, which I use to tranfer files it is not in a conveinent location. I wish they just cut out the VGA connection and just had another USB port. Nothing deal breaking but just a few minor complaints.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a portable laptop for school I am telling you this is perfect. Similar size to most netbooks but has a lot more processing power for tasks than your average netbook. Great little laptop perfect for students that need more than a netbook.

2 out of 5 eggsDefinitely not the best

Pros: The keyboard. It's an island keyboard, that fills the bottom of the clamshell right to the edges. The keyboard feels very solid and comfortable. The screen is nice. The battery life is good. Two stars for those couple of relatively minor positives, and the fact that at least when I took it out of the box, plugged it in and turned it on, it started. It all went down-hill from there.

Cons: It's too big for an 11.6" notebook - huge, fat bezel. Too wide, deep and tall. It's just not compact. Quality is abysmal. Cheap plastic all around, creaks and groans, case fan makes a loud buzz and 3rd time I start the computer, BIOS error says "case fan not operational". Hard drive clunking and clicking like impending hard drive death. This is the worst performing netbook I may have EVER used. Absolutely abysmal. RAM upgrade comes on 2 DIMMs so if you want to upgrade further, don't plan on just adding RAM. You get to REPLACE! Trackpad with integrated buttons is the worst laptop invention ever. Give us buttons. Seriously. When you tap a trackpad button, you also single-clicked on the trackpad - so your cursor will jump. Thought: I know how we can improve it! Let's make it unusable!

Extremely poor quality, extremely poor performance, and a totally underwhelming, unimpressive form factor. "F" on all counts.

Other Thoughts: I really wish I had enough room to type a full review. You can read the real scoop on @maz0n. Don't know why Newegg curtails reviews to this extent.

Overall, I'm a big HP hardware fan; HP is my favorite manufacturer for consumer hardware. This is a BIG let-down. It just doesn't represent HP quality or performance that I've seen in almost every other offering in the last couple of years.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the Money

Pros: Lightweight
crisp image
nice keyboard
pretty good battery life

Cons: the top side of the case smudges easily
TONS of crapware, literally took me an hour just to get all the preloaded software off of it.

Other Thoughts: For the money its a good notebook to use for web browsing, documents, and occasional movies. I like the size, bigger than a netbook but more portable than a standard laptop. Not a powerhouse but does what it's intended for and I'm satisfied with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful hybrid net/notebook

Pros: Loved this little hybrid computer. It has the power of a notebook with 3gb RAM and a dual core AMD processor, but the size and weight of a netbook. I do analysis of biological data in professional school, so I needed something I could take with me everywhere, and it still have the computer-horsepower to do the things I need it to do. The amount of power you get for the price tag is phenomenal, and this sort of computer (small size, big power, NOT A TABLET) is becoming extinct day by day. That's very sad, because this is exactly what fits my needs perfectly.

Cons: The trackpad was a bit iffy, but the multitouch software it uses made it simpler. Try only using one hand to do everything on the trackpad and things get a lot easier. New drivers are out and they fixed most of the issues I was having.

Other Thoughts: Just make sure you use the provided HP software to update all of your drivers/necessary software ASAP, and then you can get rid of most all of the bloatware to truly unlock the potential of this little wonder.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat netbook alternative

Pros: Great mix of size and performance. Small enough for the versatility of a netbook, but powerful enough to handle most normal computer jobs. Battery life is good, though not as high as the current netbook crop. Screen is fantastic (though glossy) and has enough resolution where you aren't constantly scrolling.

Cons: Build quality isn't the best, feels a little bit cheap in your hands. Finish is easily worn/scratched and will look used fairly quickly.

Other Thoughts: Video playback performance is stellar, contrary to the review below. The ATI platform supports hardware decoding of newer video codecs (WMV, MPG, MP4), and the playback is smooth as silk with almost no CPU usage. You may need to update to the most current Catalyst drivers from the AMD website to get the best performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Laptop

Pros: Small, ultra portable, snappy response, crisp easily readable display with 1366x768 pixels (vs 1024x600 for a netbook), keyboard feels natural even to my big hands, long battery life, supports hardware virtualization, much more powerful than a netbook.

Cons: One picky little point: The touchpad "button" area is still part of the touchpad, so it's easy to move the pointer off target just as you go to click--takes a day or two to get used to using the "button" to home in on the target, then you're ok.

One major problem: How do I get the thing back from my wife? Me, "You really enjoy this little laptop, don't you. Why don't we get you one of your own." Her, "Oh, I only use yours occasionally, so we don't need to spend the money to get me one [bats eyelashes], do we?" Cultural note to self--Definition of occasionally: 1) in boy speak, not frequently or of great duration. 2) in girl speak, only once a day, usually lasting from arising until going to bed.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for something almost as small as a netbook, but with much more power. This machine definitely fills the bill. I'm generally not a fan of the flat slab-style keys that are rampant on laptops to make them thinner, and I thought I would just have to grit my teeth and endure it. Surprise! The keyboard is very responsive and just as easy to type on as the more traditional deep-dish style keys found on keyboards for desktop machines.

This integrated touchpad "button" is tricky in linux; sometimes the button function is not recognized, depending on the distro. That's a little bit of a pain. Getting the wireless card working in linux is also a pain. Still not there. So, some issues for linux use, but not a deal breaker.

Overall, this machine represents a lot of bang for the buck; I would definitely buy it again.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: -good for what it is designed to do
-mostly easy to pop off the bottom to access or change the hard drive or ram
-most of the drivers (no chipset) for windows 7 can be found on the HP website, seemed to do just fine with windows 7 home

Cons: -glossy display
-one (trusted) online review site over hyped the video playback capabilities (I'm not faulting the computer, was just a disappointment for me)
-comes preloaded with tons and tons of crapware that will bother you endlessly to purchase
-at the time of writing, HP site doesn't have a driver for the chipset, thus not inspiring a lot of confidence in wiping and reloading to get rid of all the crapware (although when I did it it seemed to be just fine)
-price seems a bit steep (the reason for 4 eggs)

Other Thoughts: I bought this from HP directly, based off of a review from a very popular and trusted review website. I was going to use it as a glorified mp3 player, video player, and general netbook to play around with. Where it fell short is that I have a collection of mkv and wmv files that I was hoping to play on the machine, it doesn't. The site said that it played 1080p content, didn't specify from what source. While it may be true that it might be able to play from something other than windows media player, vlc or quicktime player, I can tell you that if you are planning on playing 1080p content from any of these players, look elsewhere. It doesn't even play choppy, no, it doesn't play at all. It gets a couple of frames into the video and then the player seizes up. 720p on the other hand is mostly fine. It is choppy a little but mostly smooth.

For everything else it seemed to do just fine, I was just disappointed that it didn't play video content and wanted others to know.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Nice Size
Reasonably light weight
Great screen resolution
Plays videos without halting

Cons: Keyboard is small
Bootup is a little slow

Other Thoughts: I was looking for something with a little more "umph" than a netbook and tablets are too "appy". My key use is as a lightweight portable for checking work e-mail when traveling, surfing and playing movies. With the 3G of installed memory, it's been playing just fine. I use kmplayer. It comes with the typical bloatware, but it was pretty easy to clean it up. The keyboard has full size key faces, but there isn't any space between the keys so they are more crammed together than the description implies. Overall, it's been a good little portable.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Netbook

Pros: The laptop's overall performance is great for a laptop this size and price. The keyboard is a dream to type on compared to the Asus 1000 I had before. While it can't play games at high settings, it does much better than most laptops in this price range.

Cons: The only issue with the laptop is that the screen has really bright blacks and the viewing angles aren't great, but you can't expect an HP Dreamcolor IPS in this price range. Also, the screen is glossy so outside viewing on a sunny day is a no go, but not really a con unless you are looking for a laptop to use outside.

Other Thoughts: All in all a great laptop. Recommend anyone needing a light, efficent, and capable laptop
